I did what I thought I'd NEVER do...
I cut Mystique's tail :shock:
Here's how it looked when I first got her:
(I'm going to post links so you can zoom in on her tail)
And with years of much more turnout, more brushing, and too-tight tail bags it turned into this:
You can see a definite change here between 3.5 and 4.5:
Basically, the bottom half thinned out and the top half stayed thick. So... I cut off the bottom half and I'm going to be super careful to make sure it grows out thick. It looks like it's going to be even thicker than it was when she was 3.
Here it is now:
She looks so weird with a short tail, haha. It's been to her fetlocks since the first day I saw her.
I'm going to be putting MTG on it and updating weekly so I can have some B&A pictures. I'm going to do the same with my gelding, whose tail was chewed off by Mystique, haha. Here he is: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4022/...0d4ecd88_b.jpg
Aww! They look so adorably funny! :) I can't wait to see how they both will turn out!
I would rather have a thin tail to swish flies than no tail :(
It is natural for a tail to thin toward the end. I think it looks better than an artificially thick tail that goes all the way to the ground.
So CUTE! :D I actually like it better short then long.
Aww I think ther're ADORABLE! I honestly think your horses are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen, they have the most unique coloring, and I love Mystique's eyes. I wish I had time to post a pic of my guy, he looks exactly like a gelding version of her! =]
